The Graduate Funding Unit of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies provides processing services for many sources of support for Canadian and non-Canadian students, both new to McGill and continuing. Further information on these and other sources of funding can be found on the Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies website.
Entrance Fellowships are awarded on the basis of the application for admission, upon nomination by academic units. Most internal fellowships are awarded in this manner—please contact the proposed academic units directly for further information.
Research assistantships, teaching assistantships, and stipends from professors' research grants are handled by individual academic units at McGill. Fellowships, assistantships, and stipends are used to make funding packages for graduate students. All assistantship and stipend inquiries should be directed to units.
A small number of citizens from countries whose governments have entered into agreements on tuition fees with Quebec may be exempted from the supplemental tuition fees normally required of international students. Availability varies for such exemptions from year to year; refer to www.mels.gouv.qc.ca/en/students/studying-in-quebec/exemption-from-differential-tuition-fees, and contact your local government to find out if an agreement with Quebec is in effect. For further information and the necessary application materials, see www.mels.gouv.qc.ca/en/students/studying-in-quebec. The list of organizations where students should apply can be accessed from this website.
Differential Fee Waivers (DFWs) for international students provide eligible non-Canadian graduate students with waivers of the international tuition fee supplement. There are no application forms for differential fee waivers, since these are awarded on the basis of unit nominations made to the Graduate Funding Unit. Eligible students should contact their McGill unit.
